All of the sudden, a giant creature immediately appears, destroying town after town with its landing reaching the capital. The day people first encounter the titular monster is supposed to be November 3, an obvious reference to March 11, the day the 2011 Tohoku earthquake commenced.

That film, while it had its flaws, represented the best vision of Godzilla thus far - at least for American audiences, after the disaster of "Godzilla" (1998).2016, however, marks the Return Of The King (Of The Monsters), redux - "Shin Gojira," a.k.a., "Godzilla: Resurgence." Toho's "Shin Gojira"/"Godzilla: Resurgence" is the first Japanese-produced "Godzilla" film since "Godzilla: Final Wars" in 2004 - the latter film marking Godzilla's 50th anniversary.
And lastly what about Godzilla himself (since he's the reason we go to see this movie)?Let me just say, this Godzilla does not disappoint.If you want to see only Godzilla destroying city may be you gonna hate it.80% of movie focus on politicians, They'll talk,talk and talk to find the way to defeat Godzilla.But the various characters manage to keep us interested.
But, also, this behind-the-scenes drama also provides us with plenty of chances of anti-bureaucratic satire (which I know is something American audiences would love to see).

All of the sudden, a giant creature immediately appears, destroying town after town with its landing reaching the capital. The drug that the government uses to kill Godzilla is described as something that will "disable his internal cooling system".
And, needless to say, this is a very different film from the "Godzilla" films that appeared before it."Shin Gojira"/"Godzilla: Resurgence" is the first "Godzilla" film ever to really dive into the behind-the-scenes hand-wringing, politics, and bureaucracy that was merely glossed over in all of the films produced from 1954 to 2014.
Because we're seeing so many different human characters working for so many Japanese agencies, the prime minister and the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) all working together to face a threat that defies everything they know about science and nature, we have to become accustomed to a lot of folks just standing around talking.
After the drug is used at the end, Godzilla freezes.
